Any of the Originals From the OLD Discsussion Group?
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: Any of the Originals From the OLD Discsussion Group?

So almost a year later, I decided to check out George Bradford's site to see what was new and noticed the old discussion board is no longer operating. I take it I have the marauding spammers to thank for this?

In any case, I'm curious as to which of the regular posters migrated over and who we lost.

I think most of the old board folks made it here.

I wasn't on the old board for very long before it was getting spammed and moved over here.

I guess it depends on how far back you want to think of 'The Old Board' and how good any of our memories are (Sort of like the old joke 'anyone who can't hear me please raise your hand')

I seem to remember some folks that wee on the old board but who I think dropped off before the migration. There is of course Lorrin. There was also a Norwegion tank commander (I remember him because he replied to the first post I made on teh board Way, way back). There are also some who made the transition and seem to have been dormant since then.

To the tune of about 250,000 spam posts, more or less. They did help us break the six million post mark before the site was put to death.

I was at the old board for maybe 6 months before following the herd.

Some stuff can be picked up via archives, some not...it's really hit or miss. You can't link between pages, but a few things do turn up in a search now and again. Wink

You mean via google search? Yeah, that pulls up some stuff, like you said hit or miss... But until about a month ago the board was still there if you knew the address - you could still search through it. Now the link doesnt work at all anymore...

The old board is dead and buried for sure (think it's been more than a month, though). Only the occasional archive via google comes up now, like you said.

It was unsustainable, after advent of the spam 'bots. There were some days the spam posts approached a thousand.

I was on the "Old-Board" for less than a year before making the jump here. Best move I've ever made.
